Abernathy--The Oak Tree.jpg
On a purely aesthetic level, this portrayal of rural farm life in autumn is quite clearly done in a painterly matter: quick brushstrokes with a specific choice to omit most detail. It can be assumed that the light-handed application of paint was a…

Abernathy--Blue and Gold.jpg
The depiction of the foreground illustrates a rural setting in the midst of an urbanizing town in the background – a changing sociocultural climate in New York. Abernathy uses a quick, painterly style to show that the brushstrokes are an instrumental…

Arcamonte--Pirates Haul.jpg
This painting depicts a seascape scene in muted tones, its background a washed-out, cloudy sky with a blurred ship in the distance. The middle ground consists of a pastel-toned rocky bank and sea. In the foreground, four men are docked in a small…

Bank--Pelham Bay Park #1.jpg
This painting displays a park scene using a variety of pastels, dusty colors, and vivid greens. We see a sandy sky and cool-toned trees in the background; the middle ground hosts a hedgerow outlined on the bottom with a vivid row of red flowers. In…

TheobaldSamuel - Fishing Boats, New Suffolk.JPG
Two boats, a sailboat at left and a motor boat at right, are stationary on calm water. Trees that occupy the background of this piece are reflected by the water in which several moorings are stand. A sand hill or trail cuts into these trees. The…

VarianDorothy - Deserted House.JPG
An off-white house, set behind a tree with branches reaching over the roof, sits in an opulent environment of greens, browns, and yellows. Visible brush strokes in the siding of the house show shadows and rotting wood; in the tree, they texture the…

WidlizkaLeopold - Mountain Torrent.JPG
A cascade of water runs diagonally in Widlizka’s composition, separating two areas of trees standing on what appears to be rocky foundation. Much of the water is obscured by the trees, several of which are very dark green with some lighter shades…
